House Republicans Urge Biden to Reject Democrat Push for Amnesty for Some Illegal Immigrants


Two dozen House Republicans have penned a letter to President Joe Biden, urging him to abnegate calls from Congressional Democrats to include amnesty for some illicit immigrants in their $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package.

Including amnesty for millions of illicit aliens in this reconciliation package further exacerbates and incentivizes Biden’s raging border incursion, converting it into an aeonian crisis, verbalized Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), who led his GOP colleagues in the letter to Biden (pdf).

“Using reconciliation circumvents any remonstrations to amnesty,” Good verbalized in a verbalization. My letter urges President Biden to stop pandering to the radical left and put the safety and security of the American people first.

Last week, Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee said they reached an agreement on a $3.5 trillion package that they will endeavor and pass through the budget reconciliation process via a simple majority, sidestepping the desideratum for any Republican backing. The package—which is discrete from a $600 billion bipartisan infrastructure measure—contains many provisions backed by President Joe Biden, including on climate change, expanding Medicare, and plans to address “human” infrastructure.

After Democrats promulgated the accedence, Rep. Pramila Japayal (D-Wash.) verbalized during a press call reported on by Fox News that the budget reconciliation resolution would include a pathway to citizenship for

Dreamers, TPS [Temporary Protected Status], essential workers, and farmworkers.

“Dreamers” refers to people who fall under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, which granted deportation bulwark to those who entered the United States illicitly as children.

People who fall into the TPS category are those who emanate from countries considered unsafe for them to return to for reasons like perpetual armed conflicts or humanitarian crises. Earlier, Democrats appealed to Biden to include a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrant essential workers who entered the country unlawfully in his proposed American Families Plan, urging him in an April letter (pdf) to incorporate the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act (pdf) into his orchestration.

While the Democrat-controlled House passed two immigration bills in March that would provide a pathway to gaining licit residency status and a chance at citizenship, these efforts have stalled in a divided “Senate.”

Biden, who backed both the Dream and Promise Act (pdf) and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (pdf), has urged Congress to pass a broader immigration reform measure that would establish a pathway to citizenship for all of the estimated 11 million immigrants now residing in the United States illicitly.

Republicans have opposed Biden’s immigration reform efforts, arguing that the surge in illicit border crossings should be tackled first. “How can you pass an immigration bill when you have an open border?” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) verbally expressed at a March press conference at the border.

“If” they optate to accomplish anything on immigration and I want to avail them, it would be securing the border.

In June, proximately 190,000 illicit immigrants were apprehended along the “U.S.-Mexico” border, according to U.S. Customs and Border “Protection.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the House Republicans’ letter to “Biden.”
